Planning permission granted for Limavady Distillery

Planning permission has been grated for Irish whiskey brand Limavady’s new distillery.
Established in 1750, the original Limavady Distillery closed in 1915. Limavady returned via brand owner and master distiller Darryl McNally, who is descended from the distillery’s original owners. 
The new distillery will be built on McNally’s family farm and will act as the brand and production home for the whiskey. It will be located in Limavady, near Coleraine in Northern Ireland. 
The distillery will be designed by Scottish company Organic Architects, which has specialisms in distillery construction, eco-distilling, and conservation. 
Organic Architects founder Gareth Roberts commented: “This project is unusual in that the new distillery will be located on the McNally family farm, signifying a return to home soil for the founder Darryl McNally. It is a beautiful rural site, so it has taken time to design a sensitive building which is acceptable to the local authority.”
Limavady’s single malt Irish whiskey was launched in 2022. The small-batch whiskey is currently made in partnership with WhistlePig, and uses 100 per cent Irish barley.
